Welcome to Talk of the Town #94!!! I hope this weeks features help inspire you to make something new, either a new project OR a new recipe! Fall is definitely in the air here in Louisville, KY. So I’m loving all of the fall projects and recipes that are being shared each week! Hop over to see all the goodies!
A pallet cut in half makes the perfect pallet coffee cup rack. I used one of my favorite sayings–But First. Coffee stenciled in black on the weathered oak stained pallet. Eleven single hooks allow a variety of your best coffee cups to be displayed above your coffee station.
This Fall harvest yard sign – plans available at your local Home Depot at their DIH Workshop coming up this Thursday evening at a store near you. I made a pumpkin sign that could be used throughout the Fall season including Thanksgiving. The small box could be used as a planter or even to hold fall decor picks and such.
A fun repurposed shutter (bi-fold door) project. This easy fireplace screen cover-strictly for decorative purposes-made from cut up bi-fold doors is easy to make and oh so functional for your fireplace hearth this fall and holiday season.
It’s time for the Thrift Store Decor Challenge team project for this month. I’m giving a small wooden trinket keepsake box a makeover with paint and rub-n-buff. Have you ever used it? Well… have you used it for stenciling? Be sure to check out the projects from my friends as well. They’re pretty much awesome!
Fall is in the air! Aren’t you happy that we have great fall decor and recipe ideas to share with you? How about a Jack-o-Lantern pot pie, and fall mason jar ideas? What’s your favorite part of fall? I love the color of the trees!
I made a hollow core door chalkboard, and I LOVE it! I don’t think anyone would even know this extra large chalkboard was made from a door. Although it’s large, it isn’t real heavy because of the door being hollow. Lots of tips for disguising a door project.
If you know me well at all, you know how much I enjoy shopping at Home Depot. I call it my happy place. I love to just run in and get what I need, but even more than that–browsing the aisles looking for new ways to use their items sparks my creativity. So imagine how thrilled I am to be working with them to promote this month’s DIH Harvest Yard Sign workshop!
ohhhh, have you ever had a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Are you looking for Fall decor ideas? How about some chocolate tacos? I’ve got you covered in this week’s edition of Talk of the Town. I’m really in love with that farmhouse sign!
You’re looking at the best place to find headboard benches. These repurposed bed projects are perfect for your patio, home and more. Every project has a complete tutorial to show you just how the bench was made from a bed headboard and more.
I used reclaimed fence pieces to make an adorable picket fence candle sconce using cute little jelly jars. This easy project is useful, pretty and versatile. I photographed it with battery operated candles and vacation sand. But wouldn’t it be perfect as vases for pretty flowers? Step by step directions and tips-hope you click over to get all the details.
I hope this collection of easy Halloween projects and more helps to inspire you to decorate for Fall. Fall is such a fun time to decorate inside and outside. I’ll be sharing a fun Halloween project early next month!
Talk of the Town #91 is full of FALL ideas. Fall recipes and fall diy ideas. How much do you bake and decorate for Fall? Me? not so much since I’m the only one here. Very little cooking and/or decorating happen these days, but a girl can dream, right?
I have a great Coffee Table Bench with Easy Button Tufted Upholstery You Will Want to Try soon! Have you ever done button tufting with screws instead of drilling holes? It’s so easy and it looks great. This simple project took over a year to complete because I didn’t really like the way the project was going while trying to keep it as a table.
Tutorial to change up a dollar store chalkboard into a hanging project. Tips on stenciling chalkboards with Martha Stewart Erasable Chalk Paint. Easy project to do with lath boards or paint stir sticks.
I’ve been wanting to make a ONE pallet project. This month’s Power Tool Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. I made an easy potting table out of a wooden pallet I got from a neighbor. This is a fairly easy project with minimal cuts.
Talk of the Town #90 features! Currently we have four hosts, so that gives you 4 great DIY projects and 4 yummy recipes. I know I always say they’re yummy, but why would we feature a recipe that isn’t yummy? 😉 Since I rarely cook, I’m partial to the diy projects. Who doesn’t love a good chalkboard, easy curtain, and fabulous Fall decor?
It took me five days (with the help of my neighbor) to clean out and organize my one car garage wood shop. We didn’t just clean, we built shelving and small skids to keep items off the floor when it rains hard. Lots of tips to help you organize your shop.
I’m sharing a tutorial for an extra large picture frame that I transformed into a cork board memo board. Using my favorite Smoked Glaze really makes this color oh so pretty! I can’t stop using that glaze! Looking for some fun push pin ideas for this cork board.
